Kunuku Rooi Lamoenchi - A Bonaire Treasure

Our church pastor's wife, Ellen Herrera Cochrane has devoted quite a number of years of her life to restoring the old family homestead, Kunuku Rooi Lamoenchi.

It is still a work in progress, but at this point the old plantation can only be described as magnificent. Ellen gives walking tours by appointment, something that I would put in the "must do" category for visitors who want to learn about the pre-tourism Bonaire way of life.

Ellen is off island right now, but her daughter, Eline, graciously took the Tangemans and me out for a look see.

The land house has been beautifully and tastefully restored. I could imagine living out there no problem!

I did live out there. At that house. 1981. No kidding!
